When Carrie Fisher recently discovered the journals she kept during the filming of the first Star Wars movie, she was astonished to see what they had preserved - plaintive love poems, unbridled musings with youthful naiveté, and a vulnerability that she barely recognized. Today, her fame as an author, actress, and pop-culture icon is indisputable, but in 1977, Carrie Fisher was just a (sort-of) regular teenager.
In Wishful Drinking, Carrie Fisher tells the true and intoxicating story of her life with inimitable wit. Born to celebrity parents, she was picked to play a princess in a little movie called Star Wars when only 19 years old. "But it isn't all sweetness and light sabers."
Told with the same intimate style, brutal honesty, and uproarious wisdom that placed Wishful Drinking on the New York Times bestseller list for months, Shockaholic is the juicy account of Carrie Fisher’s life, focusing more on the Star Wars years and dishing about the various Hollywood relationships she’s formed since she was chosen to play Princess Leia at only 19 years old.
Work, love, family, sex, and politics - all of these topics have been grist for the mills of some of this century's finest women writers. On this recording a remarkable company of women deliver individual perspectives on feminine passions.
Cuando Carrie Fisher redescubrió los diarios que había escrito durante el rodaje de La Guerra de las Galaxias, la primera película de la trilogía Star Wars, le asombró descubrir unos ingenuos poemas de amor y unas cándidas reflexiones que apenas reconocía. Hoy Carrie Fisher ha pasado a la historia como actriz e icono pop, pero en 1976 solo era una chica de diecinueve años perdidamente enamorada de su compañero en la pantalla, Harrison Ford.
